The Project

I will work with Wayne Law’s Disability Law Clinic to develop a medical-legal partnership with the Karmanos Cancer Center focused on the legal needs of low-income cancer patients such as health insurance, disability benefits and end-of-life decision-making. The partnership will provide training to prepare future lawyers, social workers and nurses by collaborating with several professional schools located at Wayne State such as the Schools of Social Work, Nursing and Medicine.
